Join Us for Crafty Secret Santa 2015!

Edit: Registration has now been closed.

This year I've decided to organize a Secret Santa with a special twist: please join us in a holiday gift exchange of crafty proportions, where all you need to spare is four hours of your time to surprise another artful individual with an original creation this holiday season!  Individuals of all skill levels are welcome to join and take part in the festivities!

What is Crafty Secret Santa?

By filling out 

the Crafty Secret Santa registration form

, you agree to take part in a fun holiday experience where you and other creative individuals will be randomly matched in a Crafty Secret Santa experience! Participants should not purchase premade gifts for their Secret Santa, but rather, you should put on your crafty holiday hats and spend a minimum of four hours making your Secret Santa something special using the answers in their match's form.

How to Register

I’ve put together

a Google Form for the Crafty Secret Santa 2015 project

. If you’re interested in joining us for some festive holiday gift-making, please swing on by and register!  

In order to deter bots, you will need to create or log in with a Google account in order to view the form, which also allows you to edit your answers later if you like.  Below are images of the short, two-page form so you can check it out and see if you're interested in joining us prior to logging in!

I've kept the questions very short and simple so that everyone should be able to fill in the details with the imagination and that the information will be helpful to you, regardless of if you crochet, sculpt, draw, bead, sew, make ornaments, paint, or anything else!  I'll be participating as well, of course! :)

If you notice any issues when using the form or have any feedback, please don’t hesitate to let me know! ->

What the Registration Form Looks Like

Important Dates and Deadlines

  • Registration runs through November 22nd, 2015. 
  • You will receive your match on or before November 25th, 2015. The sooner you register, the sooner you get your match! Registration may end early if capacity is reached before November 25th, 2015.
  • Please complete your project and mail it out to your recipient by December 15th, 2015.

If for any reason you need to back out from the exchange, please let the organizer know so that they can make alternative arrangements. 

Individuals who do not complete their end of the exchange will be barred from future exchanges. 

Costs and Expectations

Since you are not expected to buy your Crafty Secret Santa a premade gift, the only financial cost to participate will be to cover shipping and handling to mail your gift to your Secret Santa. You can create your gift using any creative materials you already own if you like! You just need to spend four or more hours on whatever you're creating. The sky's the limit beyond that!

When you receive your gift from your Crafty Secret Santa, we ask that you please take the time to take a photo and a thank you message if you have one so that we can share it with your Crafty Secret Santa and other participants.  Please email your photos and messages to

Your personal email address will not be shared with your Crafty Secret Santa nor posted publicly. Your mailing address will only be shared with your Crafty Secret Santa for mailing purposes.
